Lemon & Ginger Mojito Mocktail

With the cold brew’s natural sweetness, the ginger ale compliments the drink with a light fiery kick without overpowering the notes of the coffee finally topped up with a fresh zesty touch of lemon and mint. 

A new favourite of ours, invented in our roastery buy Ashley, we think this is the perfect mocktail to enjoy with any of our single origin filter coffees, but we loved it with Maraba, Rwanda.
